HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut’s secretary of the state says she does not have the final vote totals in the disputed governor’s race because of a delay in the state’s largest city. Both Democrat Dan Malloy and Republican Tom Foley have claimed victory in Tuesday’s election. Secretary of the State Susan Bysiewicz  had intended to announce the final tally Thursday afternoon. Instead, she said she still had not received the final count from Bridgeport. On Wednesday, Bysiewicz said unofficial returns showed Malloy defeating Foley by more than 3,000 votes out of more than 1.1 million cast. A ballot shortage caused problems with voting in Bridgeport. There were long lines and some people voted on photocopied ballots.
